The Betsey Johnson Show Delightfully Celebrated Marriage Equality

As usual, Betsey Johnson’s spring 2015 collection was raunchy, girly, loud, and — above all — fun. While all of her shows are beauteous spectacles, this one was especially great: it was a ruffly, lacy, glittery celebration of marriage equality.

Backstage, Johnson said that the show is part of “the whole world of straight brides, gay brides, transgender marriages, everybody getting married. Finally, freedom.” Accordingly, the show featured gay couples, transgender brides and a great deal of gender-bending. The result was fabulous and irreverent, a laughing rejection of several antiquated traditions at once.

Of course, some of Johnson’s well-known friends served as models — among the celebrities who walked were Camille Grammer of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (in drag queen-esque makeup, of course), William Belli from RuPaul’s Drag Race, Sharon Needles and Isis King, a transgender model who got her start on ANTM.

Here’s the collection in full:
